Mrs. Glenn

Mrs. GlennMrs. Glenda Glenn teaches 7th grade Advanced Content Social Studies. She has served in a variety of capacities, including working for eight years as an Instructional Lead Teacher before coming to Mabry a second time.

Mrs. Glenn builds her course content delivery around a CIA theme that she calls the Glenn Intelligence Agency (GIA) where students conduct global investigations using higher level thinking skills. She is also the Social Studies coordinator for Mabry.

After years of taking students on European tours, Mrs. Glenn embarked on several international educational exchanges of her own including Australia, Russia, Germany, and a Fulbright Memorial Teacher excursion to Japan. During these exchanges she lived in the country for a month- visiting the schools, touring, and enjoying cultural experiences.

Her passion is teaching and developing challenging, differentiated lessons for students. She's been nationally recognized several times for innovative curriculum development including the Sidney P. Marland Award from Johns Hopkins University and the prestigious Leavey Award for Excellence in Private Enterprise Education. She has also been recognized as a Georgia Outstanding Social Studies Educator.

Mrs. Glenn has carefully crafted her career so that she could teach children and adults. Intech, Models of Integrating Technology, Tech Connect Online, and Hone Your Presentation Skills are a few of the staff development classes she has taught to teachers. She is an instructor for the CCSD Gifted Endorsement classes and has developed an online portion in Blackboard. She has also worked as an adjunct professor at Kennesaw State, Brenau and Mercer universities and is currently on the Middle Grades Advisory Board at KSU.

The field of gifted education is most meaningful to her as she was one of the first teachers in the state of Georgia to receive gifted endorsement in the 70s, thus giving her three decades of experience with the gifted learner.
